June 4, 2008: a simple proposal

In the not too distant future, all the primary elections will be concluded.
In the not too distant future, all the results will be known.
By then, the May meeting of the rules committee will have taken place, and we are likely to have a sufficient number of superdelegates (even counting Michigan and Florida) to have pledged their support to an established nominee who must then focus on defeating McCain.
So this is my pledge:
I will support the nominee and oppose McCain, no matter who it is.
Though I may post suggestions and ideas as to who would make the best running mate, I will not base my support for the nominee on which running mate is chosen.
I will support the nominee and let go of whatever anger and frustration I had that that nominee was not my first (or, in my case, even my second) choice.
I will post no diaries attacking the nominee, though I may, as I've done all along, post diaries criticizing certain stances or positions.
I will post no diaries attacking one not nominated, though I may, as I've done all along, post diaries criticizing certain stances or positions.
I will not mock the supporters of the losing side (though I reserve the right to mock those whom I perceive as right-wing trolls, or anyone who will sit this election out or vote for McCain).
If I think that the nominee has a weakness among certain demographics, I will try to find ways to bridge the gap with those demographics instead of moan about how badly we're going to do among them.
I will not recommend any diaries which violate the above pledge.
Who's with me?
